The Paperboy

Written and Illustrated by Dav Pilkey



Published by Orchard Books 1996

A paperboy and his dog get up before dawn and prepare their newspapers, deliver them, and get home before the town awakes.  The paintings are dark but not foreboding, and the peace of the companionable morning ride is remarkable.  

No major curriculum connections, other than perhaps speaking to students about different jobs that people have that are not normally seen by the general public.
